.. instore @ Poundland. I've read this & really enjoyed it. Seems like an absolute steal at this price when the RRP is £16.99. Cheapest alternatives I can find for this are £5.01 for the hardback & £3.88 for the paperback!

'It's a dank January in the Worcestershire village of Black Swan Green and thirteen-year-old Jason Taylor -- covert stammerer and reluctant poet -- anticipates a stultifying year in the deadest village on Earth. But Jason hasn't reckoned with a junta of bullies, simmering family discord, the Falklands War, an exotic Belgian emigre, a threatened gypsy invasion and the caprices of those mysterious entities known as girls. BLACK SWAN GREEN charts thirteen months in the black hole between childhood and adolescence, set against the sunset of an agrarian England still overshadowed by the Cold War. Wry, painful, funny and vibrant with the stuff of life, it is David Mitchell's subtlest and most captivating achievement to date.'

I thought at first this was the same David Mitchell as in 'Mitchell & Webb', but it isn't, he's an actor, this one is an author. Seems a good deal to me. Voted hot.

A book by the other David Mitchell would also be pretty good I reckon. By this author I can also recommend 'The Thousand Autumns of Jacob de Zoet'. An epic but I was totally engrossed

This is a great book and a fantastic read. Great bargain IMO.
